Muffled yes, but never thought Id hear Gord do that one. Just him and the guitar, sounded almost as if that could be one of his song. Very good Joveski, Thank's for sharing.

Interesting. You dug up a good one, joveski.

It really does sound like it could have been one of his own songs, he sings it so well. I wish it were better quality recording, but still very nice!

I was intending to start a new topic
provisionally entitled "This Is Your Song Diana" but was unsure if , despite the Gord connections , I could dare to post it on the general Discussion Forum then luckily I remembered this old topic, and although Mende's upload link has expired, those of you who have heard Gord's version may recall that the sound quality was not just "muffled" but truly disgusting!

I thought of this topic after watching on Sunday evening NBC television's one hour highlights version of Sundays 6 hour Princes UK "Concert For Diana" from the newly reopened and rebuilt Wembley Stadium,

and which Sir Elton John opened with a very heartfelt rendition of his very first hit "Your Song"
of which I see at least three people have already uploaded videos for example
Elton John - Your Song live at Concert For Diana July 1 2007
Live in London, England on July 1 2007
4:05
alternatively:-
In addition and to tie in with the recent flurry of comparisons of Gord's "old" and present voices
in fact if you search on youtube for "Elton John Your Song " you will get a staggering 923 results, including of course many amateur covers etc and others clearly showing how Elton's voice has also changed over the decades
For example there is a black and white 'Your Song" from 1970 at:-
and one in colour and also from 1970 which I clearly recall seeing live as my first glimpse of this about to become megastar:-
Possibly the most interesting and relevant is a splendid and clever composite video made by splicing together at least a dozen clips from a selection of video performances of Your Song with Elton in varied costume and voice which the compiler aptly describes as:-
"A beautiful video of multiple performances of "Your Song" merged into one showing the various shapes, and sizes of Elton John"
watch out for his "quack"!!
4:23
the colour 1970 video is one of my all time favourite music videos
my very favourite fluctuates between the great Lionel Richie "Hello" video see:-
5:27
"One of the greatest love songs of all time. The video is a little fraky though but it's nice to see a music video that actually has something to do with the song."
and a lovely cover of Bryan Adams 1985 hit that became an international number one in 2002
this is usually referred to by its full title of "D.J. Sammy with Yanou featuring Do-Heaven"
where "do" is the abbreviated (stage) name of a young Dutch girl Dominique van Hulst
http://www.youtube.com/v/VF_gH2BWNjc
whilst trying to find that video I found this one

Princess Diana Tribute

with a montage of pictures on the same version of Heaven which brings us nicely full cycle and tears to my eyes just remembering the tragic events of 10 years ago at the end of next month. At that time I just might be able to watch one of my late mother's VHS tapes

and possibly even the tape I made during that funeral when of course Elton so memorably sang the modified version of "Candle in the Wind"
(which he had said he would never sing again and apparently did not do on Sunday, as the Sunday Concert.. see another GL relevancy!! was supposed to be a celebration of her life not death)
just one of 15 videos on youtube of:-
Goodbye English Rose at her funeral
others being
Enjoy!!

If you mean Jovski's originql link
http://www.sendspace.com/file/82svso
that he set up in October 2006
I did try it myself and found it did not work then I carefully said
"although Mende's upload link has expired,"
because upload/storage sites like sendspace usually have either a fixed time limit or automatically delete any files that
have not been accessed or downloaded for a stated period of time,
checking the FAQ at http://www.sendspace.com reveals
"We do not delete active files. We will host the file indefinitely, until it becomes inactive, in the case of sendspace
Lite™ uploaders, unless they have purchased file bandwidth for that file. A file becomes inactive if it has not been
downloaded at least once during a 7 day period"
Anyway Jay I am pleased to see that at least one person has read my posting
I was beginning to think it had been masssively unapproved by the masses here,
and that I had either
  • strayed off subject too much and/or made it "too long to go through"
  • annoyed other dial-up users by giving lots of youtube links
  • offended those wishing not to be faced with remembering the event of almost 10 years ago
rgarding the middle thought
I also I now realise completely forgot to give the link to my absolutely brilliant tutorial on how to save any youtube
video for watching later all in one piece for dial up sufferers
it is of course for those with short memories at:-
